CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A group of 33 New Hampshire Army National Guard soldiers has returned home after a nine-month deployment in Afghanistan.

Members of the 238th Medevac Company arrived on different commercial flights from Food Hood, Texas, throughout the day Monday.

A formal welcome home ceremony is expected to be held for them in April.

This trip marked the company’s third overseas assignment in the last eight years. It served in Iraq in 2005 and 2010, transporting more than 4,000 patients.

It’s the second New Hampshire National Guard company to return to New Hampshire in several days. A ceremony was held Thursday, Jan. 16, for the 237th Military Police Company at the Army Aviation Support Facility in Concord. The 110 soldiers completed a nine-month deployment in Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.
